My first reaction on seeing the Techmeme headline about msft-yhoo was "pretty please!" Although I would rather Google tried to do a giant acquisition deal and threw themselves into the tar pit.

But then I felt kind of sad, because msft and yahoo aren't really standing in the way of anyone else succeeding right now. In fact they're struggling hard to compete themselves, trying their best... and then this comes along. Anyone who has worked in a bigco knows what this nonsense does to productivity. Imagine every single one of your employees spending hours today talking about this. Well it's Friday at least. But they'll keep talking about it on Monday...

Not sure about how the merger could work logistically but we're talking some mega-market caps here: msft: $292 Billion and yhoo: $42 Billion
financially it could make a lot of sense---pk
